At a time when liberal Democrats running for president are calling for universal health insurance and are often demonized for doing so its surprising how closely Iola city leaders hew to the mark with their generous health packages for city employees.
Currently, the city pays 100% of an employees insurance premium, or an average of $475 a month, and a flat rate of $775 for families, of which the employee contributes $250 a month.
Few in private industry can afford to be so generous.
